Yesterday’s World, Tomorrow’s Future and the Pulitzer Prize

Jared Diamond, the Pulitzer Prize winning author, makes his debut on Between the Lines with his latest book The World Until Yesterday.


In it you will see not only what we learn from certain traditional societies, but most importantly, how to appreciate the advantages our own society offers.
Taken for Granted

  • Even though the numbers are smaller due to the size of the populations, the murder percentage rate in many traditional societies is more than THREE times the rate of that in the United States.
  • Men in traditional societies grow up from childhood learning to kill for survival, but most modern citizens grow up being taught that killing is bad.
  • Trench warfare, machine guns, napalm, atomic bombs, artillery, and submarine torpedoes produce time-averaged war-related death tolls much lower than those from spears, arrows, and clubs.
Reading Jared’s book I was taken by how many misconceptions I had. Some in particular stood out.

Flying Close to the Sun

  • Modern societies don’t always think as clearly as we should about the dangers we face. We misestimate risks because we get most of our information second-hand from mass media that emphasize the sensational but rare accidents and mass deaths.

  • We citizens of modern states commonly ignore how strong the thirst for vengeance can be. Among human emotions, it ranks along with love, anger, grief, and fear.

  • Jared points out that scholars tend to identify and sympathize with tribal communities who they live with, but often deny the reality of how violent they are compared to modern societies. 

Stepping Off Giant Shoulders
We should not naively idealize small-scale societies, view them as uniformly admirable, overstate their advantages, and castigate state government as at best a necessary evil. On the other hand, many small-scale societies do possess some features that we could profitably incorporate into our state societies.
The above quote, from The World Until Yesterday, is what we need to do. We must learn all the positive lessons we can from our past, and there are plenty, but we cannot glorify the past. For although we stand on the shoulders of giants, it is only so we can see a more glorious future. As with most things in life there is a delicate balance. Find the balance between yesterday’s lessons and tomorrow’s challenges and you will be grateful for your present situation.

  1. I absolutely love your blog and find almost all of your post's
    to be just what I'm looking for. Does one offer guest writers to write content for you?

    I wouldn't mind producing a post or elaborating on a lot of the subjects you write regarding here.

    Again, awesome blog!
